The 2014 Crafty Gift Exchange

title


Mikey to Talita:
I received from Mikey, a handmade butterfly necklace. It was a little too small for me, so I put it on Arianna and she loved it. Sorry she was very busy running around.

Craig to Polt:
“So on the second try, Craiggers (or his assistant) got the address correct and my Crafty Christmas in July (in almost October actually) arrived! YAY! And it’s sheer awesomeness! The paddle has Polt’s Bounty on it! In PURPLE! And as soon as I saw, I thought of one particular Asian (sans hairthing) that might be interested in having me try it out…but we’ll see! The paddle is now hanging in a place of prominence in my living room, right above me TV!” I think the best part is this: Craigger’s first attempt to get this to me disappeared in FedEx hell, and as Craiggers said, there are now TWO of these floating around the world! Hopefully someone else out there is enjoy Polt’s Bounty as much as I’m sure *I* will! It’s was WELL worth the wait!”

vuboq to john:
Steven got my name for the Crafty Gift Exchange. I have long admired his ceramic work and hoped that I would be his recipient one year and this year was it! Steven sent me a plate and three cups. Each piece has a bunny pained in blue on it and is glazed in blue and tan on a white background. And each of the cup handles is delicate little bunny too!
Steven said he sent three, just in case the handles broke, but all three cups arrived safely and in tact. I had shredded news paper all over my house for days and it had a tendency to stick in my arm hair, but who cares?!? I have three awesome cups and a plate!I am thrilled with my gifts and look forward to using them as often as possible. Thank you Steven!

Michelle M. To Enrico:
The marvelous Michelle Vis–, er, McKee sent me a triumvirate of Drag Race related swag! 1.) My own pink furry box, filled with delicious cherry candies (not all photographed here cause they were consumed 10 seconds after opening the box). 2.) A “Don’t F*ck It Up” placard, which is now placed right above my desk, so I can look at it for motivation while I’m writing papers! 3.) A signed photograph of America’s Next Drag Superstar Bianca del Rio surrounded by famous DR quotes. This is also on my desk, to remind me that if I fail at school, I can drop out and try to become a famous drag queen! Thanks for the wonderful gifts Michelle!!

Polt to vuboq:
I received my gift from the fabulously purple Polt. My package included two tins of delicious cookies (snickerdoodles (ALLTIME FAVORITE!!!!) and chocolate chip) baked by none other than the wondrous Mama Polt. NOMz. Also, I received the refrigerator magnet thing in the background, which reads “V is for VUBOQ” and “When I grow up, I want to be just like you …” And, really, who doesn’t? Thanks for a delicious and funny gift!

Talita to Adam:

Talita sent me this awesome bit of poo!  It’s a lovely embroidered poop emoji framed in a pink painted hoop.  It’s a lovely dream come true – and is currently decorating the bookcase in my home office.  I may relocate it to my bathroom in the near future – to help inspire magnificent works of art in my toilet.  Thanks Talita! ❤

Adam to Mikey:
I got this awesome wood piece with wood on it from Adam. He indicated it was valued at $10,000. I had it appraised and now have a net worth of negative $350.

john to Craig:
I was #blessed to have John as my crafty gift giver this year! Thankfully I received mine before the whole FedEx debacle or I would have gotten coal. Instead I got an awesome work of art featuring the characters from Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which was such an amazing choice because not only was it an awesome show, but I want to be Ahsoka Tano when I grow up. The level of detail is amazing! I have no idea how he does it! Thank you John!

Things That CREEP Me Out

Here are ten things that CREEP me the hell out:

Old timey dolls. What were people thinking in the olden days? Were they trying to scare their children to death? Who would want to wake up to see those evil little faces staring at you? The one above wants to swallow my soul.

Speaking of scaring children to death, jack in the boxes are another way to do it.
The anticipation of that thing popping out is enough to give me a heart attack.

Mayonnaise. SO GROSS! Barf!

Eyeballs. Specifically, touching or operating on them. The Lasik scene from Final Destination 5 almost did me in.

Bar soap*. Especially that slimy gunk between the bar of soap and the soap dish. Gag!

*More on this on a future post.

Mummies. I DON’T WANT TO SEE THAT! EVER! Put that thing back where you found it! (Plus, they carry curses).

Mold, eeeeeeeeeeeew!

Long toenails. Revolting! Clip that shiz before I lose my lunch!
(Also gross: long fingernails on men and those Lamisil toe fungus commercials).

Candle wax on birthday cake. And it gets on the best part – the frosting! I always worry that someone is going to blow too hard on the candles and spray that damn wax everywhere. If I’m in charge of candles, I put them all in one corner so the rest of the cake doesn’t get wax cooties.

Roaches. make. my. skin. Crawl.

So there you have it – ten things that I find utterly disgusting. Runners up were: hairy drain clogs,
hoarders, John Malkovich, porta potties and rotting, never brushed teeth.

What creeps you out? Let me know in comments!
